Diesel’s national average price dipped 1.3 cents to $3.857 a gallon, the second straight decline and the lowest price in four months, the Department of Energy reported.
Gasoline, meanwhile, fell 2.9 cents to $3.265, its eighth downturn in nine weeks and the lowest price this year, DOE said.
Trucking’s main fuel is 15.3 cents below the same week last year, DOE said Nov. 4 after its weekly survey of filling stations.
